Australia's First 24 -7 Homeless & Hungry Resource Centre
  Despite National annual expenditure by Federal State and Local Body Governments in the name of Homeless People
Occupy Sydney Homeless Resources 24-7
we have yet to identify another service where Homeless People can simply walk up and get free unconditional food drinks blankets and clothes- essential items when one is homeless and freezing at 2am on a Sunday Morning.
 The Occupy Sydney Homeless and Hungry Resource Centre now opens 24 hours
A day 7 days a week serving hot food providing free clothes blankets and sleeping bags when available. The Kitchen has in the last two weeks provided over 5000 individual services. About 600 kilograms of food was disbursed just over the last weekend.About 320 Blankets or sleeping bags have passed through the Centre along with at least 1000kgs of good quality clothes.

 The Resource Centre is 100% funded by public donations which can be made at the site or by calling/texting 0410722000 24 hours a day.

 We and our homeless community friends are deeply indebted to the generosity and kindness of the many members of the public and Occupy Sydney Supporters who have and continue to support this vital community service.

   The City of Sydney is being asked by opportunist Councillor Christine Forster (sister of Federal Liberal/Coalition leader Tony Abbott MHR) to evict Occupy Sydney. Photos of her being interviewed by media nearby give the strong impression that she has seen the Homeless Resource Centre which shares the Occupy Sydney Protest site. While the councillor mistakenly describes the Protest site/Homeless Service facility as a camp, the Councillor does draw attention to the fact that there is in fact no Camping site for Homeless and Transient people in Sydney -and perhaps there should be. This will doubtless be part of the discussion at the Meeting at Occupy this Saturday (22 June) from 2pm which will informally discuss Homelessness solutions .
